There’s a reason the eq that inspired this plugin has endured 45 years of musical fashion & trends: it does all the right things to sound. But even a stunning classic isn’t safe from magesy download my meddling tastes! For starters, this eq’s curves are a bit tighter than the original. Next, I added a Saturation knob to overdrive a customized op-amp. That knob generates a very creamy, lush distortion, I’ll often use the Sat on its own, no EQ’ing. It’s fat, and very much a signature Sly-Fi sound!
Stepped/fixed controls can be perfect, or they can get in my way, so I added a UBK mode where all freq and gain knobs sweep freely; I love being able to point this magical eq in between the usual frequencies.
Last, I put both a classic ‘A’ and modern ‘B’ mode on a switch with the UBK mode, so you can choose the one that works best for each track.
At the request of Tchad Blake, Axis can now transfer your settings from magesy download A or B mode straight to UBK mode for fine tuning. It also sports a phase flip switch, because sometimes things just sound better flipped.
